Destiny 2 Content Roadmap Promises Scaling Back of Eververse

Share

There's a lot of promise in this update, but we'll have to wait until Crimson Days launches on February 13 to see how big of an effect they actually have on the in game economy.

Destiny 2 hasn't had the best go of things lately.

Bungie has laid out its plans for the future of Destiny 2, addressing fan concerns that have been building for months and announcing an overhaul of the game's Eververse microtransaction system amid industry-wide outcry about the practice of implementing micropayments. What this means is that those playing the Winter Event exclusively to earn special gear to customise their guardians couldn't access numerous drops unless they were willing to shell out real-life cash in exchange for in-game currency.

We'll provide a gameplay path to earn Bright Engrams and all contained rewards (including Event Engrams). That is in light of controversy over the amount of experience gained. But perhaps none are quite as important as the planned alterations to the game's loot box system, called Eververse, which lets players pay money for slot machine-style "engrams" that randomly contain coveted cosmetic items. Skimping on EXP distribution, a largely empty and uninteresting first DLC, items not working the way they're supposed to, and much more.

This update will also update Raid rewards to make them more unique and interesting.

Destiny 2: Curse of Osiris is available for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

He further explained that XP gains are very much sluggish as of late and leaning toward some of the activities within "Destiny 2". Bungie also has big plans to change the Crucible, including the introduction of a 6v6 playlist for everyone fed up with the transition to 4v4 matches.

Bungie agrees with claims of an imbalance between Achievement and Bright Engram rewards and will be making adjustments to shift more rewards into specific endgame pursuits instead of generic XP grinding for Bright Engrams.

Independent of Expansion 2, the team will deliver a number of new features that will be released before or during Season 3.

Valor is a rank that increases with progression, or in other words, by completing Crucible matches.

Bungie will likely have additional details as the next Destiny 2 live event gets closer. As a result, Destiny 2 has been hemorrhaging players. Mayhem - a mode in which abilities recharged faster, and one of the few bright spots of the Dawning - will return as a limited-time event on a regular basis.
